    Certainly stand-alone IDPS will have its place, but based upon our current assessment of IBM IDPS to Palo Alto firewalls we are seeing a very aggressive price comparison and comparable functionality in IDPS along with mawlare, AV, app ID, etc. IBM desperately is playing catch-up with their multi-function devices and they still hold to the thought that companies will not be ripping out firewalls to replace them with next gen fw/idps solutions. I think their strategy is now wrong and Palo Alto is proving as much. Personally I still like the autonomy that standalone IDPS provides. We don't have to coordinate policy pushes with the firewall folks and we can put IDPS in bypass mode for maintenance without affecting other components like you would have on a firewall/IDPS solution. Having said this, our company is aggressively moving towards Palo Alto. Executives question why we are paying for both a firewall and IDPS solution. Grid management folks want one less access point into their isolated network and a combined IDPS and firewall makes more sense.

    Next generation-IPS will be its competition... Industry is requiring more connecting of products/software/applications on the network. Everything runs seamlessly with the customer in mind. It is not about doing it alone anymore but doing things together the customers/clients and the corporation together...
